    My biggest problem now is the need for conditional logic depending on the item people choose; that does not seem possible with this widget.  I did try, and I ran into trouble when it asked for a VALUE instead of a multiple choice item. Perhaps there's a code I can put in the VALUE box indicating that if someone chooses item #1, for example, then a certain condition should be applied?

    I fiddled around with the Ticket Purchases widget and Conditions and managed to make it work. The output of the widget is the actual name/label of the options you added to it.

    e.g.

    From the short clip above, you'd notice that the output of the widget when used with Conditions would be any of the following:

    CCRS Foundations: ELA/Literacy - ALL-DAY WORKSHOP

    Multilingual Learning Strategies in the Beginning ESL Classroom (Kristin Klas & Loretta Dakin)

    Beyond Educational Websites: Move Your Students from Technology Novices to Technology Creators (Jessica Jones & Mary Zamacona)

    Laying the Groundwork for Pronunciation Instruction (Suzanne McCurdy & Andrea Echelberger)

    Let's Talk! About CCRS Speaking & Listening Standards A-E (John Trerotola & Nikki Carson)

    NONE - NOT ATTENDING SESSION

    Since we have no idea how you want your conditions to work (or what your workflow is) I'll just setup a simple condition to demonstrate how it will work.

    Say, my goal is to ONLY SHOW the SESSION 2 dropdown menu IF a visitor selected CCRS Foundations: ELA/Literacy - ALL-DAY WORKSHOP. This is how I will set it up:

    This is great!  I had actually tried this very thing, but for some reason it wasn't working. I scrapped the questions I was having trouble with and put in new ones to test the conditional logic, and voila! It worked!  Thanks once again for working through this with me and letting me know it was possible; I appreciate your help.  This is such an important functionality for an event registration form!

    Nice going! Taking a closer look at the conditions or setting them up one by one is a good practice when sniffing out what's causing it not to work. And I'm glad you figured that out.

    If you need more help, we're just a question away, cheers!
